A frontline activist of the Ijaw kingdom, Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari, on Friday, called on President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately stop fighting former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Dokubo, who stated this in Abuja while addressing a press conference, also said that the President’s aides are sycophants and that they had been misleading him.
He further stated that the President had no reason to disagree with the former President, adding that the latter was instrumental to his becoming the President.
According to him, there is “no need for Jonathan to disagree with Obasanjo simply because he (Obasanjo) is instrumental to Jonathan becoming the President” alleging that “his aides did not manage him well because they are selfish and greedy.”
“Obasanjo removed (Chief Diepriye) Alamieyeseigha as the governor and installed Jonathan and later made him Vice President and President eventually,” he also noted.
Dokubo also condemned the inclusion of the construction of a banquet hall in the presidential villa in the 2013 budget, saying that such project had no direct link with the welfare of the entire citizens.
He also stated that, “the National Assembly, as it is presently, does not have the moral ground to amend the constitution because this exercise can only be done by the people themselves. This is why a sovereign national conference is important.”
He said further that “the 1999 Constitution is a fraud, going by its preamble,” noting that “the constitution needs the input of every Nigerian before it can be acceptable.”
